Rita's AA in Early Childhood, BA in Elementary Education, and Masters in Education Intervention prepared her to fulfill her life's mission to support children and their families during the preschool development years. Rita believes each student deserves a rich experience to help prepare them as a lifelong learner. For Rita this experience is not found in a book but rather a gift given when students are allowed to explore, investigate, and discover the world around them. She loves to help children discover "how", "what", "when", "where" and "why" as they participate in a loving learning community.
